Ms. Smith lives in a suburb of Denver, Colorado, with her husband.

She started writing short stories as a child and has always had the desire to create something that others would enjoy reading. Her other loves include backpacking, sport climbing, scuba diving, tennis, running, her two years spent as a zookeeper, and her many beloved pets. As her first full-length novel, Misplaced Clarity has been a cathartic learning experience for both Ms. Smith and her husband, who acted as chief creative consultant throughout the writing process.
